  • from St. Petersburg (Florida, United States)

 The priceless smiles and appreciation when I find someone’s sentimental piece of jewelry is worth a million bucks!! It was dark out but had to try, so I went and helped Andre and his friend Jeff find the gold  shell that fell off his chain at the beach. Glad I could help 😊


  • from Waverly (Iowa, United States)

A fun day on a pontoon ends up with a wedding ring at the bottom of Clear Lake in Iowa. After reading other finds Margi gave me a call and asked if I was willing to come look for her ring.  I was more than willing except for one problem. I had a broken toe and was currently in a boot cast. After a visit to the doctor that week, I was told that I could start the transition away from the boot and into an ankle brace.

The ring was some where by the beach and swim area of the State Park and Campground. We made plans and made a reservation at the campground for the following weekend and meetup with Margi and her husband Dan at 8am on Saturday.  When Saturday came we met and walked to the beach area. There was a large swim area marked by buoys and boats would anchor just outside the swim area and have fun. In the summer afternoon this would attract dozens of boats and hundreds of people.  They had anchored the pontoon and proceeded to jump in the water and play.  They actually had a photo of her jumping in the water. Studying the photo, you could clearly see the ring on her finger and you could see the left 2 buoys as you were facing the shore. To give a little perspective, we were 400 feet from shore and only 4 foot of water.  Using the buoys as our reference point we started searching. After 3 hours of searching we found many bottle caps, a 2020 penny, a 1966 dime, an old ring type pull tab from the 1970’s, and a top of a beverage can that was opened with a churchkey so dating prior to mid 60’s. Boats and people were starting to come so we had to suspend the search but I assured them that I would be back the next morning.  During our time together I found out that the ring had not left her finger for 30 years. Dan saved up for 3 years and had it custom made so it had a lot of meaning.

That afternoon, my wife Jeni and I regrouped. I went and bought a waterproof case for my phone so I could take it out in the water with me. The next morning at 7am, Jeni and I went to the beach and we went back out using the GPS coordinates of the photo. We searched what I thought was the correct place for another couple hours and found more junk. At this point, I was needing more sun screen so we went back into the beach. I ended up downloading a GPS app to my phone and put the coordinates of the photo into the app and when we went back out I was able to stand at the exact location of the photo.  The thing was at this new location which was left of the buoys which did not make sense as we have focused all our time right of the buoys that the photo clearly showed.  Jeni stood at that new location and I used her as a reference. I started to scan the area and within 5 minutes I got a hit at a location that was consistent with where she would have jumped in. I scooped and there it was less than 10 feet from where my gps said the photo was taken. I turned to Jeni and I could not even speak and she saw the look on my face and asked what was wrong. I was able to get the words out that I found it. After finding so many bottle caps it was just unbelievable.

We made our way back to shore at which point I gave Jeni the ring as I was shaking. We went back to our camper decided to shower to wash off all the sand and change before we called Margi.  We gave Margi a call on speaker and I explained that we had been searching since 7am and we were going to pack up but then asked if she wanted to come get this rock before we left. There were tears over the phone which made Jeni and I start to cry. Margi and her daughter came and we reunited her with her beautiful ring. It was a fun weekend that ended with so much joy.

Lost Sapphire Ring, Virginia Beach…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I’m in Virginia Beach with the Gigmaster, Mr. Steven Andrews. Steven gets a call from frantic lady who lost her beautiful emerald ring at the beach, we race out to look at the location and unfortunately they had fenced off the area, getting ready for the BeachIt country music festival. Unfortunately, we had to call and tell her that the search area was out of bounds for the next 7-10 days.

There was another factor in this story… they had pushed up the sand from the area she’d lost the ring and made one long 4 feet mound about 100 yards long to separate the ocean from the concert area and the ring would’ve been buried most likely. Flash back seven days later at night around 12:30 AM. I went there just to search the concert grounds and was asked to leave due to liability reasons, as I was walking off the beach I noticed this with the area the lady had mentioned she lost her ring and within minutes, I found it.

This was truly a miracle, so much going against us and so lucky to be in that area and sweep my coil over it. I reached out to the local news station wavy 10 and they came out and did a story on the return… I of course set it up for the surprise factor!

It was such a fun time in Virginia Beach, I’m sad to go. I met a great member and friend Steven Andrews, who has helped me a lot on how to work my YouTube channels and get more content out there for people to watch. This whole trip has been amazing meeting great members and I appreciate everyone for what they do and also for being so kind to me along my journey.

Found & Returned 24 karat Gold Ring/Virginia Beach

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I’ve been driving across America for the last two months shooting my doc-u series on my members and people they have helped. I’m in Virginia Beach now with the gig master Steven Andrews. We get up early one morning to go search the beach after the  »BeachIt » Country music festival but we were asked to leave the area for safety reasons. So we started down the beach a little bit and I found a beautiful 24 karat gold ring with a heart on it. Someone came up and told me the guy over there who was detecting was looking for a ring. I caught up to him and he told me an East Indian lady had lost a gold ring, and he was looking for it.

I asked, did you know where she lived? He said no I think she was staying in a hotel here and she may be coming back to the beach later. I asked if he saw her to please tell her to call TheRingFinders, I may have found her ring.

My friend Steven Andrews and I headed up the beach and two hours later Steven got the call we were hoping for… It was the lady who had lost the ring, she described it perfectly, we met up with her and we’re happy to give her ring back.

This is my first recovery for someone on my trip and it felt so good to hand back that beautiful ring and see her smile… A big THANK YOU!! to the Detectorist who saw her and told her to call TheRingFinders.

Ring of Keys Found Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA.

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

June 22, 2023

A bit of help in finding a set of lost keys came from a grandmother. Her granddaughter had taken ill while hiking the trails in the National Seashore area of Massachusetts. I was told the rings were “lost” somewhere along one of the trails between a parking lot and one of three ponds and perhaps by a rock where a rest stop had been made. This was going to be a long shot at best. But a challenge I was up to.

Six family members had been staying at my home and were leaving the next day. Rain was in the forecast and the daylight was waning. It just was not a good time for me to go on a search so I put off the search to the next day. I arrived at the parking lot and the ticket agent told me a set of keys had been found and were taken to the police station. Well, that was easy and off to pick up the keys.

Unfortunately the single key was not the large set of keys I was in search of. I returned to the parking lot and got ready for a hike, and off I went. I had never been on the path before and other than the assumption that the path lead to the pond I had little to go on. About a half mile later and best guesses on which fork in the path to take I was at the water’s edge. There was no sign of a rock or the keys I was sent to find.

I started hiking, going back up the trail, and searching the other side I saw what might have been a rock, but it was only a soaking wet towel. I decided to move the towel and to my surprise there were the keys. What unbelievable luck as I do not normally move personal items. This time as it was evident they had been there at least overnight and no other person was in sight. I picked up the keys, towel and a sweat shirt and headed back to the parking lot.

Two hours later I was sitting with grandmother Janet. We swapped stories about the loss and finding of the set of keys, store ID cards, good luck charm and a few other trinkets, all very meaningful to Janet’s granddaughter who was still in a hospital. The car had been towed from the parking lot to a family’s horse farm. But it was still locked. Had I not found the keys the family would have incur further charges to tow the car to the dealer, the cutting of two car keys, two house keys, and a couple of other keys. As with most returns, the monetary value of the items returned are not as much appreciated as the special meaning of something that could never be replaced. As always I was thrilled to be able to help.


Wedding and Anniversary set of rings recovered in Long Branch NJ

Got an early morning text from Jackie this morning asking for help with in finding her wedding and anniversary ring sets she lost at the beach yesterday in Long Branch. Wanting to enjoy the summer weather we’ve been having, she decided to take the family to enjoy the day at the beach. She took off her rings for safety and placed them in the side pocket of her beach bag. During the course of the day with going in and out of the bag the rings fell out and she didn’t realize it till she went to get them while back at the car. They were gone. She went back down to try and look but had no luck. She told the park ranger to report it in case someone finds them. Living up north she couldn’t come right away to show me where she was but sent a few pictures she took of her son playing and gave me a good idea as to where she was sitting. I loaded up my car and headed right down to the beach and started to search. I wasn’t having much luck and remember she told me there was a flat area by the water she was at. I noticed what was left of that area because it got washed out that night with high tide. I started to search there in the wet sand and within a few passes back and forth I found the first ring and then the rest of them. Luckily the rings didn’t get washed out. I texted her the good news and she couldn’t believe I found them. She was so grateful and relieved, the main wedding ring was handed down through the family and couldn’t be replaced. We made arrangements to meet up that afternoon to reunite her with her beloved rings. A happy ending for everyone.

  • from North Wildwood (New Jersey, United States)

Lost a ring? Don’t wait to call!


I received a call from Dawn whose friend saw my Ring Finders South Jersey page on Facebook and referred her to me.  Her daughter Julia lost her Cartier gold Love ring in the surf during a severe storm in Ocean City, NJ.  She was in ankle-deep water when strong gusts of wind suddenly blew the ring off her finger.  After speaking with Julia about the details of how and where she lost the ring, I started the search in knee-deep water and worked my way toward the beach.  I had to expand my search out about another 35 yards and the ring was found on the high on the slope! Never give up the search the rings can be found!

Toleen lost her wedding set in Ocean City, NJ yesterday while spending the day with her family on the beach.  The rings were placed in the pocket of the beach chair and fell in the sand when she folded it up. Her daughter, Alexa, searched and found my Ring Finders South Jersey page when the family realized the rings were lost. While getting some preliminary information before searching, I asked if anyone took any pictures when they sitting on the beach. Her daughter, Liana, had a TikTok video with houses in the background that helped give an approximate location. After roughly 35 minutes of gridding the area, the rings were found! Now Toleen and her family can enjoy the rest of their vacation in Ocean City, NJ.
